Q-Scan Beam Counters

Q-Scan Beam People CountersThese compact electronic traffic counters are mounted at entry points and emit and detect an infrared beam, counting each interruption caused when a person walks through the beam. 

They are more accurate than a people counting clicker and are great for basic trends, but their accuracy is reduced by larger pedestrian flows or other factors that can affect the beam, such as wider entrances, inward opening doors or direct sunlight. The units need to be mounted opposite the supplied reflector to count.  Counters should not be expected to be more than 85% accurate.

  • Clear LCD screen for set-up and viewing counts
  • Even easier set-up - Simple to mount the counter and reflector and set up via remote control.
  • Increased data storage - On-board count memory storing data for 3 years’ worth of counts.
  • Designed for mounting at different heights to count bodies/legs
  • On-screen counts can be turned 'on' or 'off'.
  • Historical hourly & daily counts can be browsed on-screen.
  • Uses variable beam strength to adjust for different entrance widths and locations.
  • Count data up-loadable - Easy import into Excel SD card (£40 for Q-Scan software SD Card upgrade)
  • More detailed reporting - View count data hourly, daily and monthly summaries.
  • View individual time-stamped counts and events detailing beam blocks and power interruptions.

Bounter, Beam Counters, Beam Counting 

“We cannot afford to engage staff in manually counting people through doors, neither continuously nor on a sample basis, and our Unicomm devices has paid for themselves in terms of staff time that can now be directed towards more productive customer service functions.

By examining footfall patterns in relation to loans, computer usage and other indicators of business levels, we can keep our opening hours and staffing levels under review to ensure that tight budgets are used to maximum effect.
The modest investment in staff time at the centre of the organisation is worthwhile in terms of monitoring and processing the data, report production and also liaising with local staff across the county. We have found these devices easy to set up and install. They are inconspicuous and have not presented us with any problems in terms of vandalism or accidental damage.”  Roger Jones, Management Information Officer at Derbyshire County Council
